Drive-Through Bath DB-Series

Drive-Through Bath DB-Series

In situations where neither water nor electricity is available, but still a simple washing of the tyres and under-carriage is required, the use of a drive-through bath is ideal. It is well suited for light soiling and moderate truck frequencies. For high frequencies or heavy soiling, we recommend using an automatic MobyDick Wheel Washing System.

The force of the trucks driving through the system will create the power to wash the tyres. The vehicles drive over a solid steel grate whose cross profiles are below the water surface. As the tyres roll off, the treads open and the dirt on the wheels is washed off by the water. The solid parts settle under the grate and must be lifted out at regular intervals. As no moving components are used, the drive-through basin is subject to hardly any wear and tear and no operational disturbances are to be expected. The operation is autonomous and no operating personnel are required. Installation and commissioning are simple and completed within a few hours.

The FRUTIGER DB-Series drive-through baths are available in five different lengths from 10 to 21 meters. For each length different versions with different water volumes and free spaces under the grate are available. This allows the drive-through baths to be adapted even better to the respective operating conditions. As an option, all versions can be equipped with a galvanised ramp set, allowing fully mobile use. In this case all digging work is omitted and the drive-through bath can be put into operation immediately after delivery.
